Obaze Banker Downs Penn State

Amber Obaze

Amber Obaze's 30-foot bank shot with 1.2 seconds remaining lifted No. 12 ranked Louisiana Tech (7-1) to an 87-84 win over No. 6 Penn State (7-2) at the Bryce-Jordan Center, ending the Lady Lions 24-game home winning streak. After Lady Lions guard Jess Strom nailed a three-pointer from the left wing to tie the score at 82-82 with eight seconds left, Obaze took the inbounds pass and quickly dribbled up the court before letting loose with the game-winnings shot, silencing the 8,283 Penn State fan in attendance.
